This fall, San Diego City Works Press marks its 10th anniversary with the release of Sunshine/Noir II: Writing from San Diego and Tijuana, an anthology of local writing about San Diego edited by Kelly Mayhew and myself.
As we note in the introduction to the anthology:
It’s been ten years since San Diego City Works Press published its first book, Sunshine/Noir: Writing from San Diego and Tijuana and, much to our surprise in many ways, we are still here.
Despite the trials and tribulations of running a very small, entirely volunteer, non-profit press, the members of the San Diego Writers Collective and other supporters of San Diego City Works Press have kept our beautifully useless endeavor afloat because, unfortunately, we still occupy a unique space in San Diego’s cultural landscape as the only local press primarily dedicated to publishing books by San Diego writers.
